Lesley Murray BA, PgDip, MBACP.
Individual and Couples Counselling/Children and Adolescent counselling and play therapy/Supervision for Counsellors.
It is very important that you find a counsellor that you think you can work with. I offer a low cost assessment session for individuals, without commitment to further sessions (£20 for assessment hour).
I am an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor registered with BACP. I offer both short and long-term therapy in the Greenwich and Blackheath area from my peaceful and discreet therapy room in Blackheath Standard. I view therapy as a collaborative process, in which we work together to enhance your quality of life and explore your issues in a safe and trusting space.
I offer psychotherapy to individuals and couples - fees are £70 for an individual (1 hour) and £100 for couples (90 minute sessions). This is payable by cheque or cash. I offer daytime, evening and weekend appointments.
I also work as a clinical supervisor and welcome students in training as well as more experienced therapists. My fees are £90 per month for the 90 minute session. You can either visit the practice for the session or I am amenable to Skype and telephone supervision.
There is free on street parking outside the practice and the area of Blackheath Standard is well serviced by bus routes. The nearest stations are Blackheath and Westcombe Park (both about 20 minutes walk).
Training, qualifications & experience:
I have been working as a therapist for more than 10 years and have qualifications in counselling, counselling supervision, creative arts therapy, and online counselling. I have previously taught the Diploma and Certificate in Counselling. Prior to retraining as a psychotherapist, I worked for the Ministry of Defence and the police authority. I have a special interest in counselling individuals who have suffered trauma while working as civil servants or in the public sector.
My areas of experience include couples counselling, addiction, stress and anxiety, trauma and general counselling. I also offer counselling to children and young people in schools. I am currently the school counsellor for Kensington Prep School and have extensive experience in the independent sector. I also offer stress reduction sessions for children preparing to take part in selection tests, GCSE's and A levels.
Areas of counselling I deal with:
Child related issues
Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
Obsessive-compulsive personality disorder
Passive aggressive behaviour

I offer a low cost assessment session for individuals, without commitment to further sessions (£20 for assessment hour).
Fees are then £70 for an individual (1 hour) and £100 for couples (90 minute sessions). I have a card machine in practice or you can pay by cash.
